I did not make it

Well I did not make the two craft fairs I had booked.The main road was like an ice rink and I nearly had a car hit me side on, so as the Police were directing traffic around a Lorry I decided to try a different route.I then had a car that could not stop go into my back.At that point enough was enough so I went Home.I am O.K. and so is the car all ready for another day.

Bag Day

What a verity of bags.The choice of fabric makes the bags look different.
All the bags were completed and we all had an extra bag pattern to take home.
A most enjoyable day with a great tutor.

Did I spend ?

Well I did SHOP at Chilford.Patterns and fabric but could not find what I needed for an order but know a site to look at now.We arrived Early and set to trying to find just the right thing,thimbles,blades and patterns.Then I found a stall with children's novelty fabric so just had to buy some suitable for boys aprons.I can not start sewing just yet as to-morrow I am at our guilds regional day.We have two speakers Kathy Unwin and Margaret Johnson and I am looking forward to that.

Off to Chilford

The Quilting exhibition is back at Chilford.It is smaller than the Festival of Quilts and can be done in a day with time for SHOPPING.Hopefully there will be new patterns to give me ideas as I do not always Like to copy as I sell my work.There might even be fabric I must have (as if I do not have enough)It is also a great time to spend wiht friends.

Grandson's Birthday

I have just had a delightful time with my grandson celebrating his Birthday.After making him this Hobbyhorse I now find the stabling has to be with me. His London house dose not have room for a stable or paddock.
